Thank you!
Po Win Taung is a Buddhist cave complex located approximately 25 kilometers west of Monywa. It is located on the western bank of the Chindwin River. The name of the complex means Mountain of Isolated Solitary Meditation.
The complex contains 947 small and large richly decorated caves. It is carved into a sandstone outcrop and contains numerous carved Buddha statues and mural paintings of geometric patterns and Jataka stories. The statues and paintings have been dated to between the 14th and 18th centuries
